As the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's head honcho quipped: "This gets us one degree closer toKevin Bacon."
Bacon's daughter with wife Kyra Sedgwick, Sosie Bacon, has been chosen as Miss Golden Globe2014, a post previously held by eventual acting luminaries Laura Dern and Melanie Griffith.
"As we all know, she comes from a very talented family," HFPA president Theo Kingma said in a statement. Sosie Bacon, 21, first starred alongside her mom in Loverboy in 2005, a movie directed by her father. Later, she appeared on TV in The Closer with Sedgwick, who won a Globe for the role.
"As a young actress who is just beginning my career, it is truly an honor to be a part of such a special night in film and television," Bacon said in a statement. "I can only hope to continue the legacy and tradition of Miss Golden Globe by following in the footsteps of my predecessors."
